Microsoft Office Certifications — Are They Worth It?

Microsoft offers some of the most popular tech products in the world. While many users might not not be familiar with Azure, Microsoft Server, or SQL Server, they certainly know about Windows and the apps in the Microsoft Office suite. Applications like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are so common that they are taken for granted.

Every Microsoft product has a corresponding professional certification. Office is no different — in fact it has three. Microsoft Office certifications are somewhat controversial because Office is a baseline technical competency for most office jobs. And for something so common, why get certified?

That’s a question we’ll explore. We’ll look at what these certs cover, who should earn them, and who should not.

Microsoft Office Certifications and Exams
There are three Microsoft Office certifications: Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS), MOS Expert, and MOS Master. They are intended to demonstrate increasing levels of proficiency in using one or more of the five main Office apps: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook.

The key word here is “using”. These certs are all about using the Office apps, not installing or administering them.
